Rockland, Maine, November 2, 2018 —The Center for Maine Contemporary Art (CMCA) invites the public to a Tuesday Talk on November 13, at 5:30pm, with Biennial artist Elaine K. Ng, who will speak about her current work and her experience this past year as a Fulbright Research Fellow at the Graduate Institute of Applied Arts at Tainan National University of the Arts in Taiwan.
During her 2017-18 Fulbright Fellowship, Ng worked primarily in ceramics and fiber exploring the visual language of cultural hybridization in Taiwan and tying it to ideas about cartography and art as map-making. Ng will speak about this recent body of work as well as share information about the process of applying for the Fulbright Fellowship Award for other artists.
Elaine K. Ng received her Bachelor of Arts from the University of California, Davis. She continued on to earn her Master of Business Administration/Master of Arts dual degree in Arts Administration from Southern Methodist University and later completed her Master of Fine Arts at Cranbrook Academy of Art. Ng currently resides in Rockland, Maine, and is one of 43 artists from 33 Maine communities whose work is on view in the 2018 CMCA Biennial, sponsored by First National Bank.
Tuesday Talks are free to CMCA members and others with admission. For additional information, please visit cmcanow.org.
